365 Days Numbah Seventeen

April 1st

K’den. I don’t know if you know this, but my daily hummingbird photos really are daily. They were taken on the dates that I post on da bloggie. This means that I really have to be watchful and try and catch the hummers when they’re there, usually outside the bedroom sliding door (which, of course, I have to keep clean). The first thing I do when I get up, and sometimes really early in the morning, is to slide the screen door back so that I don’t take photos through a screen grid. I skulk around the corner of the bathroom, slowly trying to take photos so that I don’t scare the little guys and girls off. Sometimes I feel like that cartoon thief chracter. If they see my reflection in the sliding door, off they go! I’m always watching the feeders, hoping to get interesting photos of the hummers. (Bet you didn’t know I had to go to so much trouble, yeah?)

Well, today was a day when I never saw a single hummer. Bummer hummer day. Either my timing was off or they were off busy with all the emerging blossoms. I was so disappointed to miss them. Maybe it was their idea of an April Fool’s joke? In their place, I offer this video, taken last year, of this little guy/girl who would do this all day long. Adunno why it won’t just show the video. Can only link it.

Da Heat Pump Saga, Chapter Two

Pau da battle. It’s over. I contacted Company #1 again and asked to speak with the owner. “Let me see if he’s here”, I was told. Three minutes later: “He’s stepped out for a few minutes.” Yeah, right. The guy asked if he could help me, and I told him that I want to bring back the thermostat and get a refund, that I didn’t want to leave negative reviews online, but $464.00 is a lot of money to us, and I said that we’d been long-term customers. and I wanted to get this whole thing resolved pleasantly for all of us. I told him that our old thermostat was working just fine, and if the tech who came out had checked the heating vents he would’ve seen that the pump itself was the problem, not the thermostat. He told me that he’d have the owner call me.
